Brittany is known for its crêpes, cider and delicious seafood. Your kids will love the sweet crêpes filled with decadent nutella and banana, while the savoury version (galettes) make a great, inexpensive light lunch or supper.
Brittany’s miles of beautiful coastline makes seafood a real highlight here- from oysters to moules frites, you’ll never be far from a taste of the ocean. Decades of tourism mean most restaurants are welcoming to children, if you avoid the fanciest establishments.
